Loss of limb compensation

It is difficult to imagine or understand the consequences for someone who is affected by a serious injury such as amputation.

Digby Brown’s serious injury solicitors has been helping people who have lost a limb as a result of negligence for over 40 years. Our serious injury team fully comprehends the life changing challenges ahead.

Our experience has shown us that in cases of limb loss, a specialist solicitor is vital. We are here to provide expert help in our field and do everything we can to help in other ways.

How can Digby Brown help?

Seeking rightful and fair compensation is just one aspect of the package of measures which needs to be considered and implemented to try and ensure that the process of rehabilitation and adjustment can start.

We can immediately provide assistance and support on statutory benefits and how to access local authority services through our in-house welfare rights service. We can make a real difference by arranging private rehabilitation, by assessing housing needs, and, most importantly, implementation of care and case management regimes where required.

How can our serious injury solicitors help?

In accidents where life changing injuries are sustained, using a specialist solicitor who is experienced in this area of law is vital.

Pursuing compensation on your behalf is just one part of the package that needs to be considered to try and ensure that the process of rehabilitation and adjustment can begin.

At Digby Brown, our solicitors not only set out to assist our clients to receive full and prompt compensation, but also to help them to achieve the best outcome physically, psychologically and emotionally.

As soon as we are instructed, we try to begin this process rather than waiting for compensation to be awarded.

Straight away, we can give advice and support on statutory benefits and how to access local authority social services through our in-house welfare rights service.

Additionally, we subscribe fully to the Rehabilitation Code of Practice and to the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) Best Practice Guide to Rehabilitation.

We understand that your medical condition and quality of life may be enhanced by early intervention, through an immediate needs assessment and early interim payments.

An interim payment is where insurers admit liability and agree to pay an advance sum of money to the client before the final compensation is agreed and awarded.

Process for loss of limb claims

Once you have been in touch with us about claiming compensation, we like to follow up by arranging a face to face meeting with you - either in our office, at hospital or we are happy to come to your home.

At this first meeting we will explain the process involved in claiming compensation and what steps we will be taking. We will also let you know what you can do to help us and explain our funding in more detail.

Funding for loss of limb claims

At Digby Brown, we have our own funding scheme which is similar to no win no fee funding.

This means that you won’t need to pay anything throughout the case and we have the necessary funding to fully investigate your claim and use all the resources at our disposal to ensure you receive the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to - without any financial risk to you.

Contact our specialist solicitors today

We are here to help where we can. We are always happy to chat and give advice on your individual circumstances to find out if you are entitled to compensation.

You can contact Chris Stewart, Partner and Head of our Serious Injury Department, directly on 0141 566 9541 or by emailing chris.stewart@digbybrown.co.uk
